Double/French Door Weatherstripping

Could anybody be kind enough to guide me on how I can weather strip a double / french door unit? Wind drafts comes through the cracks between the two doors.

And how do I weatherstrip the top and bottom edges as well on these doors? One door is stationary all the time while the other door is in use for egress purposes.

It sounds as if the door installer failed to install the weather strip in the groove on the door. Check to see if there is a groove missing something. You can go to the manufacturer of the door and get a weatherstrip, install it in 30 seconds, and you will have a good seal. It is similar to those in the grooves around normal exterior doors, but is cantered slightly to fit in the special groove. Post back and we'll see if we can help further.
